Saltwater pearls from Japan are normally cultured and are grown by the Akoya Oyster. These pearls are typically round in shape and colours range from light pink to white, to yellowish. They normally come in sizes up to 9mm and more rarely 10mm. China is now a major producer of Akoya pearls along with a number of other countries. These are the pearls that our grandparents normally passed down through the family. The brand Mikimoto pearls are essentially Japanese Akoya pearls that have been left in the shell for six months longer than the typical Akoya pearl. We carry a large range that are good quality at affordable prices.

COLOUR RANGE: Light pink to white, to yellowish
